Sinopipe Holdings has reported a 4.9 percent year-on-year increase in revenue to Rmb149.9 million for 1Q14. The rise in turnover was mainly due to higher sales from the water supply and fuel gas segments partially offset by lower sales from the other segments. However, net losses expanded by 21.6 percent in 1Q14 to Rmb29.1 million on the back of lower gross profit margins caused by higher materials costs and a substantial increase in finance costs.

Vallianz Holdings has agreed to acquire 24,500 shares which represent a 49 percent stake in Vallianz Marine (VM) for US$2.3 million. Following the acquisition, VM will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company and the management believes that the acquisition will further strengthen the company’s position as an integrated offshore marine services provider.
